Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

HavanaCat is traveling though time and will return last week

make sure from now on that all the products I buy are not tested on animals (read all 4 entries…)
Avon, Estee Lauder and Mary Kay have started paying for animal testing again!

I don’t use anything by these companies, but I just wanted to say that I hope these companies suffer from a big plummet in sales because of their stupid decision to restart animal testing. It’s because they can’t market their products in China unless they do the animal tests that China accepts. Sure, China would be a huge market, but ethics people, where are your ethics??? It’s all about $$. Stupid idiots.


lovingmex43 is focused for 2013

good for you

I try not to use product with harmful chemicals in them but forget about this aspect.

Thanks for the reminder.

Yes, me too! I research the chemicals as well and stay away from the harmful ingredients. Everyone around here is selling Arbonne cosmetics which claim to be all natural, but I read the ingredients list and it was really bad. :(
